Editorial Reviews

Phantom from 10000 Leagues The Another cult classic of 50's science fiction warning of the perils of unchecked scientific progress. The titular creature stands guard over a submerged uranium deposit and messily does away with anyone who gets too close to it.Giant Gila Monster TheTeenage mechanic Chase Winstead and his friends are only interested in having a groovy time but there's a giant lizard cramping their style--and eating them. The rear projection gila monster is decidedly low-tech and Chase's musical numbers will leave your mouth agape but it all comes together in a wonderfully schlocky package.Eegah! Eegah (yes that is his name) meets and falls in love with pretty young Roxy Miller played by Marilyn (I'm-too-old-to be-playing-a-teenager) Manning. The fact that Arch Hall Jr. plays Roxy's boyfriend and Arch Hall Sr. plays her father adds to both the confusion and the fun. Utterly hilarious.Monster Maker The Horror mainstay J. Carrol Naish plays mad scientist Dr. Igor Markoff. The good doctor has eyes for Patricia Lawrence but she has the good taste not to reciprocate his feelings. Markoff then injects Patricia's concert pianist father Anthony with a serum that hideously deforms his hands and face. Since only Markoff can cure Anthony Patricia will have to love him now won't she? Classic mad scientist logic in this gem from Hollywood's golden age of horror.Attack of the Giant Leeches B-Movie mogul Roger Corman served as executive producer on this slimy little opus. That old chestnut nuclear radiation is to blame for some men in cheap monster suits--I mean giant leeches--which start feeding on the residents of a small southern town. Especially noteworthy is the performance from July 1959 Playmate Yvette Vickers as a white trash goddess who along with her illicit lover is forced into the leech infested swamp by her cuckolded husband.Killer Shrews The Captain Thorne Sherman (James Best who later played Roscoe P. Coltr

Its an all-out monster attack... or is it?

Reliving my youth with collections of movies from the Seventies and Eighties has generally been a blast, and with the magic of the internet, youtube and dvd and blue ray, we can have those days again. Growing up I was always a fan of the Japanese monster genre (especially Godzilla films), and perhaps "Attack of the Monsters" plays a big part of that reason. For this particular film, you'll have to abandon disbelief and leave all common sense at the door. It may also help to try and view it with the mind of a nine year old, since that seems to have been their intended audience. If you can't do that, than have a few beers invite a few friends, and just do a MSTK3 on it.

Gamera is the monster hero in this one; that retro rocket flying turtle that blasts through space with blue flame jetting out his leg holes is back, and he's up against a pretty tough customer in this one - the ever frightening, knife-headed Guiron! Dun-dun-dun! There's also a slicked up, silver version of Rodan named Gyaos in this one who fires perhaps the most lethal laser attack in all of the Giant Monster movie!!! Still, my favorite has to be Guiron in this one, whose appearance is anything but menacing - unless you're nine years old -- or drunk. Seeing him for the first time reminded me of the candy gram shark on those early "Saturday Night Live" bits. For sheer lunacy, there's nothing better than Gamera's defeat of Guiron as he lands nose down in the dirt. Despite his awkward costume design, and the crazy flying discs, he proves to be an interesting, if not vicious monster, and does quite a bloody job on our hero.

Most of the action takes place on 'Terra', a planet directly opposite the Earth on the other side of the sun.

To paraphrase Shakespeare, the gods look down on this uncertain event and laugh. For anyone who thought that the lesser Godzilla movies were the bottom of the Japanese sci-fi barrel, this movie is a reality check. Gamera wars against Guiron, a knife-headed giant lizard that crawls around on hands and knees. Guiron also slices through Gaos earlier in the film. (Who comes up with these names, anyway)? Two reckless pre-teens, Akio and Tom, journey to a counter-Earth planet inhabited by warring monsters and two space babes in svelte togs. For some viewers, the girls are the best part of the movie. Especially when the Japanese Thelma and Louise get the idea they need to eat the kids' brains. Akio's preparatory haircut adds a definite style statement. It does nothing to diminish his concern that road accidents are one of the great banes of life. He asserts this theory at least three times in the film. Great dialogue is evident when Space Babe #1 says, "Let's fix the ship first and then eat their brains." The dubbing and technical qualities of the DVD transfer meet low rent expectations. The FX are clumsy and rubberized, as usual. This juvenile sci-fi flck is strictly for indiscriminate kiddies, and steadfast fans of cheesy movies. It's fun in a reverse sort of way. ;-)

This movie is really fun to watch, the story is exciting and the monster Guiron is a really cool monster! Nice touch to add the aliens having a different kind of eyes that is used in the movie Gamera vs. Viras.

Format: DVD
This has got to be one of the silliest of all the Japanese rubber monster movies. Two Japanese boys discover a flying saucer, fly it to a planet inhabited by Guiron, a ridiculous monster with a knife-snout and throwing stars in his nostrils (watch and learn,) and two space babes dubbed very poorly. They uncover a plot that involves both head shaving (a theme introduced early in the film by helpful policeman and Jerry Lewis impersonator, Detective "Cornjob"...don't miss the practice with the disemboweling cutlass) and brain eating. Somehow Gamera (a friend to all children if you'll recall your Gamera history) learns of the kid's distress, comes to the planet, defeats Guiron with a missile through his nostril (really), and takes the boys back to Earth in his mouth.

If this sounds muddled, it is: it is one of the more ludicrous plots of the genre, and is definitely worth a few laughs for the unadulterated cheese factor. My favorite scene in the film hands down is the gymnastics routine Gamera performs in mid-fight (followed by the daintiest dance you have ever seen a giant turtle monster do.) This is all, of course, utterly ridiculous, but therein resides the appeal.

Format: Amazon Instant Video
It seems like Japan is visited by more monsters and aliens than any other location on earth; a sort of Bermuda triangle of monsters. I have to believe that someone has generated at least one college paper based on the incredible coincidence of monsters and Japan.

This time we have three children looking through a low-power telescope when an alien spacecraft lands nearly in their backyard. The obvious choices for the children would seem to be, a) tell their mother, b) call the police, or c) climb aboard the spacecraft and journey to another planet populated by brain-sucking babes. You can guess which answer wins.

On the way to the other planet Gamera shows up and, other than breathing nicely and making growly monster noises in the vacuum of outer space, tries to keep the spacecraft from landing on planet Terra (do not be confused with our planet named Terra - I am sure you can see the immediate distinction between names).

Once on the planet, Tom and Akio (Akio's sister had to stay behind because she was too little) immediately encounter Guiron and Gaos. Unfortunately, this early scene generates a huge laugh when Gaos's foot is lasered off. Seriously, this scene is unintentionally funny. The movie continues a downhill slide from here.

The boys soon encounter the only two inhabitants of planet Terra, two females hungry for boy brain. The movie never explains why boy brain is a delicacy on Terra. Through a variety of machinations and Gamera, who clearly was preparing for the summer Olympics (in yet another hilarious scene) the boys and Gamera are able to escape back to the earth and the end of this film, thereby ending the movie career of the two boys (I think).
